Workplace technology trends: 3 sites to learn more about the changes
Staying on top of the latest technological advances can mean the difference between optimising your workforce and falling behind competitors. This is especially important for businesses who want to create a workplace that attracts and empowers top talent. However finding the information you need isn’t easy. In addition to insights from ADP, there are a number of excellent resources that research and report on the most up-to-date business and technology information. Here are a few to consider:
- Forrester Enterprise Mobility
Forrester, one of the most recognised and influential research and advisory firms in the world, helps business and technology leaders keep up with the trends and strategies that are driving growth. According to Forrester (1), for example, enterprise mobility is not just about mobile devices, but about a larger shift to new systems of engagement for customers, partners and employees. You can learn more by reading Forrester’s blog (2), downloading research reports and attending webinars.
- The Mary Meeker Internet Trends Report
One of the best resources for keeping abreast of all the trends related to the Internet is Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends Report. Mary Meeker is a venture capitalist at Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers (3) — the prestigious Silicon Valley venture firm — and a former Morgan Stanley managing director and research analyst. There is a section in the report called “Re-imagining Enterprise Computing: Changing Business Process One Segment at a Time.” It includes communications, data overload, tools people use at work and trends impacting how people work, all leaning heavily toward mobile technology trends.
- Forbes: For Frequent Insights on the Mobile Workforce
Another resource to bookmark is Forbes. With a section of its website entirely dedicated to the Mobile Workforce (4), you can gain “insights into building a reliable, scalable mobile business.” Articles published at Forbes Mobile Workforce are targeted toward business leaders and trends that are impacting how businesses operate and how employees work. Forbes is a great resource for more frequent and news-based updates related to mobile technology trends.
Technology is quickly and continuously changing the way people work, and it is impacting how organisations attract and manage talent. We hope these sites give you a few options to stay up-to-date with the very latest technology trends.
